Arthur on Aberdeen apartment development is topped out in the West Loop

363 units are coming to LG Group’s Arthur on Aberdeen (210 North Aberdeen)

Last week, LG Group announced the topping out of Arthur on Aberdeen, the 19-story, 363-unit apartment building in Chicago’s West Loop. So last week, I took a 360-degree walk around the site for a look at progress from GC Power Construction and CC (concrete contractor) McHugh Concrete.

Congrats to the entire team, including design-architect NORR, and the topping out of a great-looking building on a sunny day.

Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides (and Amtrak trains to Milwaukee), Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, domain fees, snacks & energy drinks, and comfortable walking shoes add up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.

Glazing Gets Going at Arthur on Aberdeen

Arthur on Aberdeen, the residential project at 210 North Aberdeen in the West Loop from LG Group, has grown by leaps and bounds since I last stopped by in August. I went by last week and found the first level of curtain wall almost complete. And you know how much I enjoy seeing the early signs of glass on a building. I figure it’s about time I posted some of those photos, eh?

Power Construction is on duty here as the general contractor. McHugh Concrete is handling masonry duties.

The NORR-designed apartment tower will boast 363 units across 19 stories.

210 North Aberdeen puts its tower crane in the air

Just in the nick of time, before August ended, 210 North Aberdeen got the tower crane up in the air. Work was supposed to have started Monday, but weather may certainly have hampered those proceedings. But Tuesday and Wednesday were beautiful days, and it looked like the finished touches were being wrapped up Wednesday afternoon. My guess is that crane is lifting all manner of heavy stuff by Thursday morning. Shout-out to Power Construction and All Crane for breaking our mini-Chicago-tower-crane slump.

210 North Aberdeen set to erect Chicago’s first new tower crane in forever

Sorry to be so dramatic. It hasn’t really been that long. But since we’ve lost three tower cranes (160 N Elizabeth, 166 North Aberdeen, 853 West Blackhawk) this month, it’s nice to see one going up.

And that’s going to happen starting Monday at 210 North Aberdeen. (h/t to Chris for dropping the hint.) That tower crane base is well-hidden, but the behemoth ALL Crane next to it gives away the story.

As caissons continue, 210 North Aberdeen scores its superstructure permit

Caissons are poured at 210 North Aberdeen

LG Group’s 210 North Aberdeen scored another building permit this week, adding the foundation & and superstructure permit to the caisson permit issued July 5. That means Power Construction (with McHugh Concrete on masonry duty) can continue work up to the 3rd floor, with the full-build permit expected soon.

When complete, the NORR-designed tower will deliver 363 apartments across its 19 stories, while connecting to the Arthur Harris building under renovation. A restoration permit was issued for that portion of the project (216 N Aberdeen) on July 17.

Demolitions are underway for 210 North Aberdeen

Slo-mo Green Line Fly-by over 210 North Aberdeen

It’s tough to see the demolition work Taylor Excavating has started at 210 North Aberdeen (fences and angles and whatnot), so the video above, taken from an outbound CTA train, was the best chance to watch. Soon, Taylor Excavating will bust through the backs of the buildings along May Street for better spectating.

LG Group has approval for 210 Aberdeen, a NORR-designed 19-story, 363-unit apartment project in the West Loop. To make way for it, demolition permits were issued May 11 for 213, 215, and 221 North May Street (the aforementioned “backs of buildings) as well as partial demolitions for 210 and 214 North Aberdeen. The original Arthur Harris & Company building, which encompasses both those Aberdeen addresses, is being preserved. Only the small addition on the south end of the building is being removed.

The handsome Arthur Harris & Company building stays put.
